We are different but we are together


We have come from the different background, different culture, different schooling and different parenting. Regardless of these differences, we are together for our common goal.

Our mission is to inspire the indigenous women of Nepal in America to be united under this umbrella in order to protect our traditional knowledge, language and culture supporting each other with the love and compassion. We are together with a reason to make something different in this world and it is possible when we joined our hands together.


Our belief also connects to make the feeling of ‘we’ and prevent the loneliness as many of us have been struggling here alone  parting from family and relatives. We want to be a home of everyone and want to share the love with each other as family members who join us for the common goal. We treat our members equally regardless of the origin, age, background and education. We have made our organization as a place to share the pain and pressure during the hard time that we can never anticipate who might suffer when.

Despite having the busy schedule of work, home and many with studies, we have been able to segregate our little time to contribute the members when anyone goes through the adequate sadness and
